The Self-Paced Center has been in operation since 1976. It has moved from Evans Hall to McLaughlin to Davis to Hearst-Field Annex and now to Sutardja Dai Hall. Originally, we only taught Fortran and Pascal. We added C in 1986, followed by UNIX, C++ and Java. We added three 47 series "bridge courses", and in 2006 we added a Python course, During the dot-com boom of the 90s our enrollments peaked at 800. Today we are at about 400.
